Beautiful Reminders

Ever since my mother died I have felt like a lost little girl wandering around the universe searching for something, anything that will make me feel whole again.

There are things in this world that just touch my soul and make me feel things so deeply. I can’t always describe the way it makes me feel, however; I will say for a moment, sometimes just a brief second, I feel whole again.

I know I will never truly be the same, and that’s okay. I’ve come to accept that. It’s a harsh reality when you realize the world doesn’t stop spinning just because yours is crashing around you.

But as it always has been and always will be, Life, goes on.

Sometimes those beautiful things are things once forgotten brought back into my life like a breath of fresh air. Tonight, that was a forgotten song.

Doesn’t Remind Me By Audioslave

I’m not quite sure how I forgot about this song, given my love for Chris Cornell, but thank you to Spotify for putting this one into my Discover Weekly!

Sometimes there are people I meet and feel an instant connection with, leading me to believe that somewhere along the line our souls have crossed paths before.

soul connections

Some of you, for instance, when I read you I know, I just know I’ve felt your presence and your energy before. It’s an amazing feeling that I relish in!

Amanda and Christen, my best friends, always refill my cup and make me feel whole. I literally crave time with them!!

It just amazes me that we as humans have these connections, not just with people but with inanimate objects, sounds, sights, and tastes!

Looking back through some old photos, I came across one of my favorite spots in my hometown. Swallow Falls State Park. I love water, I think it must be my element, but there’s something spectacularly special about waterfalls!





Thank you, to all of you who have ever made me feel whole!! Thank you to anyone and anything that has given me a beautiful reminder of myself!


I love you!!

Love & life lessons,
